Ranking Arizona 2019

Congratulations your company is #1! The readers of AZBigMedia have spoken, and for the upcoming 2019 edition your company will be featured as # 1 with a 1/4 page photo and an editorial write up.

Your Ranking Az Photo

The photo style for the project is an environmental portrait of the principals or other representatives of the company. 1- 3 people in the photo is best due to the size of the photo in the magazine. More than 3 people is OK however people will appear smaller and farther away. Environments may include (but are not limited to) your building or lobby featuring your company's logo, work areas, completed projects, or any other environment that may illustrate what your company does or why you are #1.

The editorial photo session is paid for by AZBigMedia, there is no cost to your company for this assignment.

You may elect to have additional photography done while I am on-site and/or license the Ranking AZ 2019 image for your own usage at your own expense. Please see the information to the right (below for mobile devices) for details.


The "Schedule Photo" link will open my current calendar, along with a form for scheduling your appointment. The deadlinevis November 29th, 2018 with an extension till December 15th for those companies that were notified at the end of the production. Appointments are scheduled in the order they are received.

Ranking AZ appointments may be scheduled Monday - Thursday as availability on the calendar permits. Please schedule within the same geographical area as appointments already scheduled, i.e. Phoenix, Scottsdale etc. if at all possible.

The appointment time is the time that we will take the photo. I will arrive about 20 - 30 minutes prior to scout and set up the shot.

Principals will generally be needed for about 10 - 15 minutes for the actual photograph.

Ranking AZ Proofs & Caption

Ranking AZ images will be shot digitally. After the photo shoot, principals & representatives will have the opportunity to review the images on-line to select the final image as well as review and approve caption information (names and titles of those in the photo, up to 25 words) that will appear with the photo.

Captions are limited to 25 words per the directive of the magazine. NO exceptions may be made.

Ranking Az Editorial Write Up

Please submit your editorial write up which will appear below the photo and caption directly to Amanda Bruno at the magazine. Amanda.Bruno@azbigmedia


I will be working with over 200 companies this fall, while I understand that sometimes situations arise that require rescheduling, please make sure to give me as much notice as possible so that I may attempt to fill that time slot. Appointment cancellations of less than 48 hours are subject to a cancellation fee of $75.00. (Exceptions will be made for illness or bona fide emergency)
